This weekend saw the NAACP Image Awards take place in Los Angeles. The award show celebrates Black excellence in media and culture, and honoured names including Amanda Gorman and Usher, while paying tribute to the films such as The Colour Purple and American Fiction.

Queen Latifah headed up proceedings on stage, while there were also plenty of A-listers on hand to dish out the awards. When it came to the red carpet, there was much to enjoy, from Kerry Washington in Vivienne Westwood and Yara Shahidi in Ferragamo to Oprah continuing her love of purple in Prada.
